The main reason behind the confusion is her age difference from her ex-boyfriend Martin Henderson. Some sources state that Martin and Aisha have an age difference of 20 years, while some state that she is 17 years younger than Henderson.
Martin Henderson was born in 1974, and if we calculate her age by 20 years difference, then it is clear that she was born in the year 1994.
Currently, the age of Aisha Mendez will be 29 years old on April 2023. According to her birth date, her zodiac sign is Aries, and her ethnicity is Mestizos. Being born in Mexico, she holds Mexican nationality.

How she met Martin Henderson?
The main reason Aisha came to the spotlight is because of her relationship with the New Zealand actor Martin Henderson.

Some sources also reported they met in 2018 when Martin was sailing with a squad of sailors for plastic awareness. The duo ran into each other during that social drive.
Some stated that the two might have met when Martin stayed in Mexico during the first wave of Covid in 2020. However, the authenticity of this news is still in the dark. In April 2020, Martin opened up about his relationship with Aisha.
